McAllen, TX, November 21, 2016 —
 Rio Grande Valley shoppers will have enhanced parking options at La Plaza Mall this holiday season. This morning, La Plaza Mall management and representatives of Macy’s joined together to officially open the shopping center’s brand new, two-level parking deck, adding approximately 740 spaces to the mall.

“We are overjoyed to see this next phase of La Plaza Mall’s expansion and redevelopment come to fruition,” said Roberto Luciano, Mall Manager, La Plaza Mall. “The addition of the parking deck has significantly increased our shoppers’ parking options and allows unprecedented access directly into Macy’s.”
